We were 5mins away by taxi so went ourselves. Only took about an hour to go round but we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend. Kids 10 and 13 also enjoyed.

We arrived mid am in our hire car, and got a guide (Dwayne) to take us round on our own as it was a bit quiet at the time. He was very knowledgeable about the caves and their history, and answered all the questions we threw at him. Even saw Charlie, the cave Boa constrictor, as we were going round.... More

The tour was interesting and fun because we had a very upbeat and funny guide. I would suggest going early, as it gets quite hot inside the cave. It's not the most beautiful cave I've seen, but the history of the cave is interesting.

The 4 of us went there mid afternoon and the place was quite quiet by then so we went on the tour on our own. The tour took 45 minutes, the guide (Brian) was excellent, fun and informative. He gave a good commentary and history of the caves and Jamaica, the caves were interesting and the route well thought out.... More

Booked thru Viator for the Green Grotto tour, the meeting time was at 10:30 am at the pier, the operator TourWise Limited did not show. I call them on the phone an the cancelled the tour without any notification. Another vendor provided a similar tour at a better price.

We had a tour guide who gave us briefing about our safety and the Do's and Don'ts. A fee is charged for the visit which is American dollars. The Guide was friendly and very professional and ensured we walked the caves with caution. The cave is not far from the hotel! I have learnt so much from the guide regarding... More

Had a great time going through out the caves and learning about the history of the islands. Be sure to wear appropriate shoes, as flip flops are not the foot wear for this adventure.

Informative fun adventure 😀 Guides were friendly, fun & full of historical knowledge for the adults & entertaining for the kids. Even gave us a discount as my husband is Jamaican (even without appropriate Id) nice to see this for a change 💕

The caves have some interesting history. There was also bats and snakes that were cool to see. There are some areas where you can do some exploring. The caves are also pretty. Overall out of a scale from 1 (don't go)- 10 (must go), this is a 5. If you go its cool, if you don't you won't be missing... More

The caves are not the most amazing I have seen, but are definetely worth it. Again in Jamaica it seems everything costs 20-25 USD Dollars for entry., Its just a short 1 hour visit with a very funny tour guide. If its on your way and can do a stop, do it !
